Marry those among you who are single, or the virtuous ones among yourselves, male or female: if they are in poverty, Allah will give them means out of His grace: for Allah encompasseth all, and he knoweth all things. (24:32)

As what kind of entity does Islam envisage Woman? Does it consider her the equal of man  in terms of dignity and the respect accorded to her, or is she thought of as belonging to an inferior species? This is the question which we now wish to answer.

 The particular philosophy of Islam concerning family rights:

 Islam has a particular philosophy concerning the family rights of men and women which is contrary to what has been going on in the last fourteen centuries and with what is actually happening now. Islam does not believe in one kind of right, one kind of duty and one kind of punishment for both men and women in every instance. It considers one set of rights and duties and punishments more appropriate for men, and one set more appropriate for women. As a result on some occasions Islam has taken a similar position as regards both women and men, and on other occasions different positions.

 Why is that so and what is its basis? Is. that why Islam, also, like many other religions, has derogatory views concerning women and has considered woman to be of an inferior species, or does it have some other reasons and another philosophy?

 You may have heard repeatedly in the speeches, lectures and writings of the followers of western ideas that they consider Islamic laws concerning dowry, maintenance, divorce and polygyny, and other laws like them, as being contemptuous of, and insulting to, the female sex. In this way they try to create the impression that those provisions only prove that man alone has been favoured.

 They say that all the rules and laws in the world before the twentieth century were based upon the notion that man, due to his sex, is a nobler being than woman, and that woman was created simply for the benefit and use of man. Islamic rights also revolve in this same orbit of man’s interest and benefit.

Suplication

 

 

I was there the day you were born

 And I gave you special gifts to last a lifetime.

 

 I touched you, made you smile,

 Helped you grow and watched you take your First step.

 

 I even reassured you that every

 Thing would be okay when you lost your first tooth.

 

I saw you off on your first day of school…

 And I lingered by your side the whole day.

 

 I was there to console you every

 time you cried and I held you every

 time you fell and scraped your knees.

 

 I was there every day all through the

 years and I always strived to give you direction.

 I helped you every step of the way

 into adulthood, bringing you daily

 gifts of inspiration, hope and love.

 

 And I gave you trials so that you

 could grow into the warm and

 beautiful person that you are…but I

 never abandoned you to them.

 

  I’ve never for a single second, turned

  My back on you when you needed

  Me – even when you thought that

  you didn’t need Me.

 

  I heard you every time you spoke

  and I answered every prayer though sometimes… for your best

  interest, I didn’t answer them the

  way you hoped I would.

 

 I’m still with you through your joys,

 your hopes, your tears, your

 dreams… through the bad day, the

 good days – through every day of your life.

 

 

 And I will be there in the end to

 give you comfort and see you safely

 home where you will sit beside Me

 in all the glory of heaven.

 Nudbeh Supplication…  (Audio Lecture)…

Love of Prophet’s progeny. Learning what are Ahlul Bayt for our own prosperity. Seeing Imam Zaman. What are the conditions? Feeling Imam Zaman (AJ) at the level of knowledge? Listen to the Audio lecture to have more understanding about Supplication Nudbeh.

There is no greater wealth than wisdom; no greater poverty than ignorance; no greater heritage than culture; and no greater friend and helpmate than consultation.


There was a young man, before he was a Muslim; he lived with his mother until he was about 18 years old. Then he moved out of his home and lived in a different place on his own. During those days, he met some Muslims and became very close friend to them. Eventually he himself became a Muslim after learning about the beautiful religion of Islam from them. He made an effort every day to learn more and more about Islam. One day, he came to learn about the benefits of being good to one’s parents. After knowing this, he decided to visit his mother whom he did not visit for many years. He bought some flowers and fruits for her on his way. His mother was very pleased to see him after so long. He started spending lots of time with his mother on a regular basis. During his visits, he would stare at his mother and tears would roll down from his eyes. The mother noticed this happening many times and asked him one day the reason, why he visits her so much all of a sudden and why he cries. He told her about how he became a Muslim and that the position of a mother in Islam is very high.

He also told her about the reward he gets for looking at her.

 But while looking at her, he cries because the mother is not a Muslim and would not be able to save herself if she dies in this state. The mother immediately recognized the beauty of Islam and became a Muslim.
